Slippery Packaging...

 A slippery coating technology developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and being marketed by LiquiGlide Inc. of Cambridge Massachusetts, could revolutionize the packaging industry.  The slippery coating applied to the interior of the packaging makes viscous liquids flow faster, saving consumers time, and cutting waste caused by contents sticking to a container wall.

Orkla ASA, a Norway-based $3.9 billion consumer goods company, could be the first use food packaging made with the slippery coating.  They have obtained  a license for the coating and plan to use it for coating mayonnaise packaging later this year.  In March, LiquiGlide announced a licensing agreement with an adhesives glue maker, Elmer’s Products Inc.

LiquiGlide claims it is developing custom coatings for more than 30 clients around the world, working with some of the biggest name brands in consumer packaged goods industry within the U.S. and abroad, and expects to see the LiquiGlide coated packaging for consumer products on shelves by the end of 2015 or early 2016.
